This was my first time using milk paint so I wasn't sure how she'd turn out. I used Old Fashion Milk Paint in Marigold Yellow. I applied a coat of red paint first however on the front and sides to see if that would show through after she was distressed. Then I applied 2 coats of milk paint and was amazed by the results. I used a wire brush to achieve "maximum chippiness" to her legs and the front.

Here she is complete! I dressed her up for a night of fun reading, she is perfect for a nightstand or in a front entry way (which is where I'm putting her for now). Notice the Nancy Drew book? I picked up a couple vintage ones on the same day I found sweetie - there's nothing better than to snuggle up with a comfy blanket, a good read and a cup of tea.
I'd love to hear from you so please let me know what projects you've completed.
